MLB Trade Deadline: Cubs reportedly land Justin Wilson and Alex Avila from Tigers

When Wilson finds himself in the Cubs bullpen is a fun topic. Wade Davis remains the closest, but many types Maddon employs in late, high-altitude situations, including Carl Edwards Jr., Pedro Strop, Koji Uehara, Hector Rondon and Brian Duensing under.

Mike Montgomery is a southpaw like Duensing and Wilson, but he stays along as a kid. Justin Grimm may have difficulty being assigned to be assigned here as they are likely to type Wilson’s presence.

The appearance of the Cubs’ reliever body was already strong. The team currently has a Bullpen 3.34 ERA, which is good for the quarter (linked to the Yankees, in fact) in the Major Leagues, just behind the Indians, Dodgers and Red Sox. Now it’s the best.

Looking back, a trio of back-end Davis, Wilson and Edwards with Uehara as gears, Duensing as a guy just needs to get left, along Montgomery as a man and softener and Rondon available continues Being of first class.
Keep in mind that other NL competitors like the Dodgers and Nationals have also lived for Wilson to get it is also a win for the visitors, the Cubs are planning to face the playoffs.

Even more bonuses for the Cubs is that Wilson did not enter the free agency until after 2018. If Wade Davis walks in the free agency – which looks likely to set the stage – the Cubs could switch Wilson closer role next season.

Avila, 30, hit .274 / .394 / .475 with 11 doubles, 11 doubles and 32 RBIs in 264 flat appearances this season. Young Willson Contreras is firmly entrenched as the starting manifold, so Avila is likely to be used to rest Contreras.

Note that you can handle Contreras field on the left, too, if the Cubs wanted to use there with Avila behind the plate. The innovator Victor Caratini be returned to minors to open the way to Avila.

Candelario, 23, is a .136 / .240 / .250 hitter in 50 major league games. He batted .266 / .361 / .507 with 27 doubles, three trebles and 12 bouts in 81 games with Triple-A Iowa this season. It was considered a high range of pamphlets and ranked number 96 in the baseball booklet in the year by MLB.com.

Candelario can play first base or third base. With tigers, you will also have a chance of DH. Although many candidates, which was very consumable for the Cubs, such as Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant block the foreseeable future.

It is currently locked in Detroit also, by Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Nick Castellanos, but the tigers are being rebuilt, which can store younger workers, regardless of their position, is a good start.

Paredes is a short-term 18-year-old third baseman who plays with class A. Through 91 games, he hit .261 / .341 / .399 with 25 doubles, seven runs, 49 RBIs, 49 RBIs and two bases. Stolen Without doubt, it is projectable, but far from the major ones. Again, it makes sense to both parties.
